Baton Rouge Balloon?



Recommended Posts

Hi all - I just started researching weight loss procedures. I'm 43 and have 75 lbs to lose. I've tried Nutrisystem, a shake only diet, Ideal Protein, Functional Medicine detox, intense exercise...and always lost 20 lbs - that's it though. I admit that I don't always follow ALL of the rules so that's probably why. I'm frustrated and found out about the balloon. Any advice? Does it work? Regrets? Anyone in Baton Rouge have recommendations?

Thanks!

I had my balloon put in in January. Sure I lost 20 lbs, but I lost that in the 1st month because I had to fast and get used to the balloon. Haven't lost amy weight since. It's been a big dissapointment for me.

From someone who's gone through it I'd say I have absolutely no regrets... the balloon did what it was supposed to do and that was help me lose weight, which I did. However, the balloon is not a cure you need to take is seriously and really work with your doctor to break your bad habits. I'm having my second balloon put in in July because I still need help losing weight. 6 months was just not enough time for me to break all my bad habits. Hopefully this time around I'll kick my bad habits for good. Good luck to you and stick it out... the first two weeks are the worse but it gets better...

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
